The objective of the TA is to prepare a strategic master plan for the development of Chittagong Port in the next 20 years.
The consultants prepared a traffic forecast and assessed the existing port operation, maritime and hinterland access and prepared the overall port development framework. The contract with the consulting firm was closed on 31 March 2016. The TA has addressed all aspects of the terms of reference.
The consultant firm's final report recommended the implementation of a series of capacity enhancement and operations efficiency improvement investment projects. The design for these investments under a TA-loan and to finance the investments through a project loan of Multitranche Financing Facility is envisage.
Since the TA has identified potential future projects for public and private sector funding, including projects for possible ADB financing, the TA closing date has been extended to 31 December 2018. This is to support the needs of client in the upcoming project preparation and project processing phase, that will facilitate improvement of Chittagong Port through the proposed TA-loan and investment projects scheduled for approval.
An individual consultant has been hired to assess the current operation and capacity of the terminal. He also determines the constraints and requirement of the civil works, thus, will prepare a construction plan which will secure that the works will not disturb the port operation, and that necessary cargo handling capacity will be maintained during the construction period.
